Three minutes here, five minutes there, 25 minutes this week can add up substantially over four seasons, eventually costing his players the chance to hit career milestones.
DALLAS — For decades, Geno Auriemma has been conflicted about how comparatively little playing time his All-Americans receive due to the nature of the games they play. It's been rout city in Storrs for a greater part of the past 22 years and it's not really Auriemma's nature to leave his stars in games already decided with less than 12 minutes to play? What's the point?

An icon on campus for more than 40 years, the UConn Co-Op could be replaced by a national for-profit corporation.
For 40 years, the UConn Co-op has been a fixture on campus much like the UConn Dairy Bar or, more recently, Gampel Pavilion — familiar to even the greenest first-year student.

America's oldest continuously published newspaper.
Introduction

The Hartford Courant was founded on October 29, 1764, as a weekly newspaper (The Connecticut Courant) and has never missed a publication since its inception. It's the newspaper in which George Washington placed an ad to lease part of his Mount Vernon land. Thomas Jefferson sued this newspaper for libel - and lost. And Mark Twain tried to buy stock in this paper but his offer was turned down.

The paper won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism for a series of stories on the flaws that plagued the Hubble telescope, and the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting for the in-depth coverage of the tragic events of the shooting at Connecticut Lottery headquarters.

In 2013, The Hartford Courant was one of three Pulitzer Prize finalists in the Breaking News category for "complete and sensitive coverage" of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., and for "using digital tools, as well as traditional reporting, to tell the story quickly while portraying the stunned community's grief."
